Mickey Rourke wants to fight U.S. presidential hopeful Donald Trump with a baseball bat.
Donald's campaign to become the Republican Party's presidential candidate in November's general election has irked many celebrities, with Miley Cyrus, Richard Gere and Spike Lee among his most vocal critics, but few have challenged the property tycoon to a fight.
The Wrestler star did just that when he took time out from a game of baseball to invite Donald to face him.
"Donald Trump can go f**k himself," Mickey told editors at TMZ.com. "His wife said he's a tough guy; he's not a tough guy, he's a bully and he's a b**ch and he can suck my f**king c**k. I'll meet him in a hotel room any motherf**king day of the week and give him a Louisville slugger (a brand of baseball bat). Kiss my motherf**king a** you b**ch punk c**ksucker."
The movie hardman, who briefly quit acting in 1991 to embark on a three-year professional boxing career, also took aim at Donald's wife Melania, calling her "one of the biggest gold diggers around".
"I used to go out with a golddigger and I mean how could you sleep next to that flabby fat piece of s**t and get your f**king rocks off..." he asked. "You gotta go to bed with that every night?"
Mickey's offer to fight the 69-year-old is not the first time he has spoken negatively about the former host of American TV show The Apprentice - he previously called him out for bullying after he failed to correct one of his supporters who claimed U.S. President Barack Obama was a muslim at one of his political rallies last year .
Despite his involvement in a string of controversial incidents on the campaign trail, Donald has led polling in the Republican contest for most of this year.
The property entrepreneur's unlikely political success has sparked alarm among a number of famous names, although some celebrities have backed the star.
Those who have expressed degrees of support for the businessman-turned-politician include Jon Voight, pop star Aaron Carter and retired boxing champion Mike Tyson.
